Rick Pfeiffer, owner of Tall Oaks Enterprises is someone I would definitely recommend to anyone in need of landscaping. He has been my landscaper for 6 years and has always been very professional. He is knowledgeable, reliable, prompt, courteous, fair priced and always leaves the area clean. Over the years I have had shrubs, trees and flowers planted and pruned. He has taken care of damaged trees and shrubs. He has delivered soil and mulch to replace where needed and always with no complaint. He has laid a beautiful brick sidewalk from my driveway to front porch. My neighbors, friends and family were very impressed with the appearance and the brickwork. In fact, after seeing mine, some of my neighbors now have brick sidewalks and patios. Call for a free estimate. He will return your call promptly.

Our experiences with Rick Pfeiffer and Tall Oaks Enterprises during the last six years allow for saying that we have no reservations recommending him to provide landscaping design, purchases and installation. He has provided us with designs for consideration, listened to our input, adjusted plans, and grasped our intentions for the look we sought to create. At one point, after he and we had developed our working relationship, he brought me some new/odd perennials he had seen and said he knew Mrs. Stick would like these and I did.

Rick has stood behind the one year warranties he gives on all our new plantings and, most importantly, he is honest and hard-working. Recently, we needed a red Japanese maple to replace one that was a casualty from this past winter’s heavy snowfall. He and his assistant selected an absolutely exquisite tree to replace our “lost” one and when we questioned him regarding possible replacement of another Japanese maple in our yard that did not look healthy to our untutored eye, he suggested that we wait and see because he thought the tree had possibilities. He said “I’m not looking to spend your money if I do not have to.” Much to our surprise and delight the tree has leafed out beautifully! Many of our neighbors and friends have used Rick and Tall Oaks to do their landscaping and been as satisfied as we are. His work speaks for itself.

As the owners of a new home with sparse landscaping, we learned of Rick Pfieffer’s exceptional work from a couple whose exquisite lawn and gardens were created by Tall Oaks Enterprises. That was eight years ago, and we continue to use Rick’s services today. In addition to his many noteworthy qualities of being honest, trustworthy, dependable, knowledgeable, and fair, Rick has taken a genuine interest in our personal design choices and style and has transformed our outdoor living space into a beautiful area we enjoy immensely.

Rick takes the time to listen to what we want, offers different options, and uses his years of experience to guide us in the decision-making process. His talents go beyond his extensive knowledge of plants and trees; he designed and built a stone-walled garden and rock pond with cascading water in our backyard, creating a peaceful place that attracts a variety of birds. Rick delivers on time and as promised at a fair price. He uses quality plants, shrubs, trees, and materials, and he guarantees his work. It is an understatement to say that he takes pride in his work!

We greatly appreciate both his service and his loyalty and recommend his landscaping service without reservation.

We discovered Tall Oaks Enterprises quite by chance on a business card bulletin board. We had only been in the area for about a year and didn’t want to go with a large nursery. What a great find it was! In the past year we’ve used Tall Oaks on several projects that included re-doing a small pond, building a patio and fire pit, and landscaping. Rick, the owner, is readily available for discussions and idea exchanges and actually answers the phone or returns the call promptly. He is very easy to work with, providing suggestions but also listening and paying attention to what you want and then doing the work for a fair price. We’ve found him very flexible and amenable to the mid-course changes and add-ons which seem to be inevitable with landscaping projects as they come together. We are about to begin another project with Tall Oaks, and look forward to those results in a few weeks. We highly recommend Rick and Tall Oaks Enterprises to anyone who wants landscaping done right at a fair price.

After receiving recommendations from friends, I hired Rick to do some landscaping in 2013. Not only was he extremely professional, knowledgeable, friendly and fairly priced but he also did a fantastic job. Since that time, he has done all of my pruning, mulching, landscaping and has installed a beautiful walkway.

Rick’s best characteristic, besides his excellent workmanship, is his reliability. How many of us have been told at one time or another of an arrival time and that arrival time is never promised? That will never happen with Rick; he is prompt and, if some unforeseen event happens, he will call immediately.

One fine note: This spring Rick was doing some landscaping and mulching and discovered a broken sprinkler head and also a broken pipe. He replaced the sprinkler head, drove to the nearest hardware store to buy pipe and returned to repair it – all out of the goodness of his heart.

Would I recommend Rick to others? Without hesitation – ABSOLUTELY!!!

Six years ago, Rick Pfeiffer, of Tall Oaks Enterprises, was one of the contractors we interviewed for the installation of a paver patio at our new home. From that first meeting, we were impressed by Rick’s knowledge, expertise, and creativity. He listened and considered our needs carefully, explained his plan, provided suggestions, answered our questions, and offered fair pricing. We chose Rick for that job and were pleased beyond expectations. That was the beginning of a completely satisfying ongoing customer relationship. After installing our patio, we hired Rick to complete several other jobs for us over the years, from paver front steps and walkway to various kinds of landscaping work. Rick’s design and landscaping advice have been valuable and helpful, and most importantly, he stands behind his work. (A couple of years after the patio installation, he noticed some settling and immediately addressed it.) He and his crew are reliable and do superior work, never taking shortcuts, and always maintaining high standards. We have recommended Rick to so many people (including our own children) that we have lost count. Many of those customers have also recommended Rick to others, happily making him a ‘regular’ in our neighborhood. Even with the many ensuing jobs done by Tall Oaks as a result of so many recommendations, we have never heard a negative comment or dissatisfaction expressed, only praise and pleased reactions. That is a real tribute to not only the excellent quality of Rick’s work, but to his professionalism and dedication to customer service. We continue to call on Rick for our outdoor needs and certainly continue to recommend Tall Oaks Enterprises to anyone looking for outstanding work and first-rate service.
